Michael DeForge’s collection of comics culled from anthologies, limited run mini-comics and award-winning one-offs, Very Casual (9780987963079 | May 2013 | $15.00 | Trade Paper) has been reviewed by Douglas Wolk in the  The New York Times Sunday Book Review.

“[Very Casual] collects perverse, funny, haunting stories by the Canadian cartoonist Michael DeForge, whose pet subject is the overwhelming creepiness of bodies. Everything and everyone in his drawings is dripping, bubbling and developing unsightly growths. He warps and dents the assured, geometrical forms of vintage newspaper strips and new wave-era graphics into oddly adorable horrors; his stories are prone to whiplash formal shifts.” — Douglas Wolk, The New York Times
